Manikarnika crosses Rs 50 crore with some struggle


Kangana Ranaut’s courageous period drama, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’, opened with a bang at the box office but the spirit dampened as the week progressed. The film opened with a whopping Rs 8.75 crore on Friday and went on to make a weekend collection of Rs 42.55 crore. But with the beginning of the week, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ collection took a drop to Rs 5.10 crore on Monday and Rs 4.75 crore on Tuesday, marking a total of Rs 52.4 crore. Since the biopic on historic figure Rani Laxmibai has received a lot of positive feedback, it is expected to wrap up the first week with a collection of Rs 55-60 crore.
